The Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ on Sanibel honored veterans on Nov. 10 with Veterans Sunday. On the chancel at the front of the sanctuary was set a “White Table” to remember and honor those who are prisoners of war and missing in action. Concretion members take care in preparing the table every year as a tribute. In addition, the Suncoast Brass Quintet played at the 9 and 11 a.m. services. Keeping with tradition, it led the “Veteran’s Hymn” near the close of worship. Veterans from each branch and their families were invited to stand as the stanza was sung that honors their branch. The quintet then closed out each service with a rendition of the “Armed Forces Salute.”
